You probably already know the health benefits that come with drinking tea. It can lower your cholesterol, boost your energy, and even help you drop a few pounds. What you might not know know, however, is that drinking tea isn’t the only way to reap its health benefits. In fact, using tea on your hair just might be the answer to some of your biggest hair struggles.
If you don't already know, Pai-Shau's Signature Tea Complex is a blend of five steeped teas that are infused into each and every one of our products.
Here are the benefits of using tea in your hair care routine:
1. It keeps hair soft and shiny
Tea is packed with good-for-you nutrients that can help make damaged hair soft and shiny again. The antioxidants it contains work to remove buildup and help your hair absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals, as well as protect it from UV rays that can further damage and dry out strands. This leaves you with soft, shiny, and most importantly, healthy hair.
2. It prevents split ends
Studies have found that panthenol, an ingredient in green tea, is especially efficient in preventing split ends. This, along with other vitamins and antioxidants found in tea, make it extremely helpful in preventing breakage and strengthening strands.
3. Tea soothes irritated scalps
Tea is a strong anti-inflammatory, so it soothes the scalp and helps with irritation and inflammation. The ingredients in tea also help remove dead skin cells that can block hair follicles and leave them clogged, which is great news for people with dandruff or itchy scalps.
4. Tea can stop hair loss
Many teas contain caffeine, which is great when you need a mid-afternoon boost. But did you know that it can also help prevent hair loss? The caffeine in tea naturally suppresses a hormone called DHT, which is the compound that’s responsible for hair loss.
5. Tea helps your hair grow
Not only does tea keep your hair from falling out, it can also help it grow! The caffeine works to stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation and blood flow to your scalp. This stimulation encourages hair growth in a healthy, natural way that won’t leave your scalp feeling angry and irritated.
